Sunday Verses

When Life is Out of Control
Happy Sunday! No, that is the answer to the question this verse poses, but it sure hasn't stopped me from trying. The past two weeks have been a lot like this picture--out of control, wild, messy, and cold. I got stuck in Montana a couple extra days and still had bad roads for my solo drive home. One kid's car broke down in -22 temperatures and we weren't there to help him through that. My eldest and his very pregnant wife have Covid. My youngest, a college freshman, planned a three night getaway over the long weekend to visit a friend in Nashville--it turned into an eight day trip, with five cancelled flights. After hours and hours on hold, the sixth try on the third airline is getting her home as I write. And, there have been other hard things these past few weeks that I have asked people to help me pray over because I believe in the power of prayer. I trust God and his word, I know he loves me and wants the best for me. BUT, I am still working through letting go of worry. I know worrying seems to give me some sense of control when I really have none. I also know worry accomplishes nothing, is unhealthy, and is part of being human. I don't have any great answers to get over it, but I have made baby steps. I verbalize something like, "This worrying is not helping, stop." I stay busy, breathe, read the Bible, visualize hanging out in happy places, and minute by minute I am learning to trust that Jesus has got it covered.


  1. If it could make you live longer then I'm in luck. I'll make it to 150 easy peasy. I am better than I used to be though. I can actually wait 15 minutes before I call him or completely freak out! Lol. But I do know that He has it covered. Thankful for that.

  2. Meant to say that if my son is late picking me up from somewhere or if he is late getting home.

  3. Thank you, I needed to hear that.


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
